Overview God has brought us a mighty long way, and it is always good to pause and praise the Lord! In many churches, there are points in worship wherein a testimony, a song, or a sermon is just so good that it calls for a “praise break!” With Praise Break: Celebrating the Works of God, participants will: • Hear how people in the Bible had praise breaks! • Celebrate the faith of leaders, past and present! • Give praise for the “right now” works of God! • Have community fun in Jesus Christ! With an intergenerational game, participants will celebrate how God has worked through events and people, from the Emancipation Proclamation, to the establishment of schools and businesses, to the gaining of voting rights.

“The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.” (James 5:16b, NRSV)

I will have the faith to pray!

The Savior’s Birth (Luke 2:8-15) Angels praise God and tell shepherds about Jesus’ birth.

“Your Savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)

Lost and Found (Luke 15:8-10) A woman and her friends celebrate when she finds her lost coin.

“The God of heaven will give us success!” (Nehemiah 2:20a)

I will celebrate success in Christ!


Marching to Zion (Mark 11:7-9; Luke 19:39-40) As Jesus rides a donkey toward Jerusalem, he warns that if people are silent, the rocks will cry out!
